The linux installation instructions are exceptionally poor for this product. There appear to be large gaps in the steps necessary, and as a result the application not only fails to start up, but it fails even to indicate why it can’t start.
Following the documentation, (using Hypersonic database), I get to launching openfire, and issuing
> ./openfire start
nohup: appending output to ‘nohup.out’
At this point, absolutely nothing shows up in nohup.out, and I cannot connect to the application on the administrator port.
